Get to know me

Hello there! Thank you for taking a look at my site and showing interest in getting to know the girl behind this site. My name is Makenzie, I go by many nicknames but my two main nicknames are Mickey and Mak. I was born in Bethesda Maryland however I have lived in Fredericksburg Virginia since I was a few days old, basically I don’t get to say the saying “born and raised”, but close enough. I attend University of Mary Washington and am a business major and hoping one day to open my own equestrian facility offering lessons for kids and adults with or without disabilities. In addition, offering training services for horses and horse owners.

Yes, I am a horse girl and I have had a love and passion for horses since I was born. I do some competitive riding but as of right now I am training two of my own horses and trail riding with friends.  I am pictured with my youngest horse, Joash, who was my first horse ever! I got him when he was just 11 months old and now he is 3. Growing up I always had a passion to work with horses and eventually own my own Equestrian Center providing a variety of services. To this day I am still on that journey of accomplishing that dream and growing more every second.

life full of animals is the way my life has and will always be, I truly don’t know life without animals in it. Growing up we had dogs, ferrets, birds, cats, turtles, and fish. About 2 years ago I added two horses of my own to my life. You will always catch me with my animals and taking them on some pretty cool adventures!

I see the glass half full never half empty….I always make sure I am living my best full life, doing something adventurous, and making many memories. As you will see I am always outdoors finding my next adventure to do usually horseback or with my dogs, but always appreciating this world we have been blessed with.
